Hopefully I still have some followers out here because I’m back and starting out this new chapter with a random update followed by a more focused post. I’ve been MIA for a little bit as I began a new leg of my journey. Making a big transition in life is not easy and definitely takes a village. I’m beyond thankful to my little village that helped load things onto the trailer, loaded things off the trailer and up the stairs, and made the long journey across the state with all my stuff.
I moved in on Saturday.
Cable and internet hooked up on Sunday.
Off to work Monday morning.
Driving to training a little over an hour away for the last couple days, so basically 8 hours of training plus 2.5 hours of driving for the last couple days.
Back to work tomorrow but I should be off early on Friday so I can continue to unpack.
I cannot wait to have everything unpacked. I don’t do well with chaos so tonight I was ready to cry because I feel like everything is such a mess. It’s really not that bad and I know everything is amplified because I’m exhausted. I decided to hold off on the unpacking instead deciding writing might be a better activity for tonight.
I have so many great ideas for my new place but I’m trying to remind myself I need to finish unpacking completely before I start shopping….plus I really need to budget these next few weeks until the paychecks start showing up. Thankfully being unemployed has taught me some tricks to getting by with less but I’m finding I really need to work on getting into a routine so I can continue my healthy eating and exercise.
I saw there is a gym right across the street from me so I might look into that but for now I’m going to use the fitness center here plus I bought some 5lb weights so I can do some light strength training during the week. The area around my work is a little sketchy but I’d love to find someplace to walk close by since I have an hour lunch. It’s on the expansive to-do list.
Consistent eating has been a bit challenging but I’m confident once I get through this first week I’ll have a better idea of my routine so that will help. I haven’t been too terrible but during the moving process it was pretty much pizza, takeout, and fast food 😦 Making my first real meal in my new place last night was one of many highlights of the week.
I’m exhausted right now but it’s all been worth it so far and I’ll have more about that in another post.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! I’m loving my job but I’m already back to looking forward to the weekend! 😀
